Clemson took advantage of a rocky first inning for South Carolina starter Brannon Jordan and scored the game’s first run on a sacrifice fly from Bryar Hawkins to take a 1-0 lead.

Elijah Henderson drew a leadoff walk and Kier Meredith worked an eight pitch at bat that ended when he was hit by a pitch to give the Tigers a pair of runners with no outs.
